Learn some of the ins and outs of how wildlife biologists capture, band, and release geese and other birds at this June 20 event. A mock bird banding operation will be set up and you will have the opportunity to practice banding fake Canada geese. You might even get banded yourself!  This event is great for kids of all ages. No live birds will be captured.

·         June 21, 10-11:30 a.m. - Planting for Wildlife

At this event, attendees will learn how to provide food, water and shelter for wildlife through planting and find out which plants are best for birds and pollinators.
